I am printing in PET material. The bridge threads are very, very fine and get torn up by subsequent passes. Sometimes a wad of threads will be created. Sometimes the final solid layer will clean up the mess; sometimes it results in a badly pockmarked surface. The only setting I see related to this is Bridging Speed, which by default is 1/2 the normal speed. What should I adjust to solve this problem?

Bridging results in very fine threads which get torn and twisted...
MatterControl crashes when viewing slices in 3D...
I have a monster print (72 hours). When I try to view past about halfway up the layers, MatterControl starts leaving gaps in the layers and then crashes.
I attached the file along with the settings export...just for giggles.

My first print is 72 hours...and it almost worked...but...
Go big or go home!
My first print was a monster 72 hours, and it was within 10 hours of completion before it quit.
I am trying to deduce the cause of failure before I print again, and have a question...
Upon stopping, the printer display said that the print was completed, even though it was not. However, it appears that the SD card may have been accidentally popped out during the print. If that happened, does the printer give an error or does it give the "print finished" message?
If it was caused by the SD card, then I will feel better about trying again.
By the way, the print was using InnoPet and was looking beautiful...
